You can also use a special socket make for removing O2 sensors, but i would never try a line wrench on these (it always ends badly)
Pretty sound advice, I don't think I would cut the cable just yet incase there is a way of putting in the new O2 sensor without having to tie wires together. Mr. Leverage can still be used just have to have a wrench with 2 open ends if you don't cut the cable.
